I owned the 2018 version (i7-8750H, 1070 Max-Q). Due to the bad cooling system design, there's nothing you can do.

 

I repaste the CPU thermal paste with Liquid Metal, with the Comfort Mode I get 75 degrees while heavy gaming.

 

Since the GPU doesn't overheating, I repaste it with normal CoolerMaster thermal paste.

 

But my CPU still gets overheating under the Perfoemance Mode.

Well I guess thermal pasting is the only option then.Wasn't inclined to it as I dont want to risk my warranty.I think i should take it to a HP service center.

i dont think it does help to take it to the hp center, if it does, they should've done it from the beginning but nah

i doubt repasting it yourself voids warranty, but have an engineer from hp look at it if youre uncomfortable. you can ask them to use your thermal paste if you want, if you plan to buy the liquid metal as yamy suggested

And I thought I was the only one having throttle issues beucase of the cpu is overheating...and I have a desktop...seems like all the thermal design doesnt help at all...I would take it to warranty!

Yep safe option. Although I'd only suggest get the kryonaut and then ask an engineer to apply the paste
